Yes, your bookmarks are private. Your sync login data (bookmarks , usernames, passwords, history) is fully encrypted once it's created and/or modified. Mozilla doesn’t decrypt your usernames and passwords when they are stored on the sync server. If you forget your Firefox Accounts email and password, Mozilla will not be able to recover your sync data as we do not have access to it.
